And_Telestreet: The Italian Media Jacking Movement (2005)

something has gone horribly wrong 8-p
Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

A short documentary exploring Italy's Telestreet phenomena, a network of close to 200 micro pirate TV transmitters that begun in the summer of 2002 to counter the media monopoly of Silvio Berlusconi. Perhaps the most interesting tactical media initiative of recent times, the TeleStreet network combines both old and new media, lo-tech and hi-tech.

The documentary speaks with activists from TeleAut and SpegnilaTV and media theorist Franco Berardi (Bifo).

Subject: Interesting video
The motivation from an experimental/independant point of view is quite fascinating; exploring technology out of it's general use.

But however, i have the feeling that the Italians are finally completly fed up with their "benevolent dictator" ;-)

Would've liked to see more about their general activism.

Subject: legal issues
Telestreet pratice in Italy is totally illegal.
To use air frequencies you have to buy an expensive license from the governement. Otherway you are outlaw... one of the Prime Minister national network (retequattro) is outlaw too becasue one cannot have more than two national networks. So we live in a state of illegal order.

Subject: Short, informative, inspiring
For $500 these tv hackers set up TV stations in italy. This documentary is well editted, informative about the technology and theory which combines to demonstrate that this is all doable for those with the political will.

Qualification: The legal issues are not discussed, nor do I know what they are.
